We had hoped the death toll would remain low in the Washington Navy Yard shootings, but it turns out to be worse than we feared.
D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier has officially confirmed that there have been 12 known fatalities at the hands of the shooter.
A number of other injuries have also been reported, including to police officers.
As we previously reported, one gunman has been killed, but police are on the lookout for two more possible shooters- a white male and a black male, both between the ages of 40 and 50.
The FBI is now leading that ongoing investigation.
No motive is yet known for the killings, but our hearts go out to the families of the dozen innocents we lost today.

Oh no! A gunman is terrorizing the Washington Navy Yard!
FBI and District Police report at least one victim as a shooter armed with a rifle has opened fire on the Washington, D.C. landmark.
According to Navy sources, three shots were fired at the Naval Sea Systems Command Headquarters this morning. The shooter is still at large.
3,000 people work at the Navy Yard. Our thoughts are with them now.
More details to come as they become available.
The U.S. Navy is now reporting multiple people wounded:
We can only hope it doesn't go any further than this.

We’re happy to see that Eva Longoria accepted her Community Service award like the seksi stunna she is!!
The gorgeous actress attended Target's Hispanic Heritage Awards in Washington, DC last night and showed off her fabulous figure in an epic looking Versace gown!
The dress' structured bodice hugged Eva’s curves and held up her cleavage in a way that was both classy and elegant, while her shimmery train provided a nice bit of sparkle all the way to the floor.
Eva’s hair was pulled back into an attractive chignon that put her face and neck on full display.
Congrats on all your hard work, gurl!

Michelle Obama joined President Barack Obama on Wednesday to honor the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s "I Have a Dream" speech, and as usual, she was dressed to the nines!
The First Lady posed in front of the Lincoln Memorial for the Let Freedom Ring Commemoration wearing a beautiful black dress covered in large scarlet-colored flowers by American designer Tracy Reese.
